Florida consumers may want to take note of some of the products many people still have in their homes, despite the fact that they have been recalled. The products were recalled by The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) because they pose risks of severe personal injury and, in some instances, death. It is not known whether some users are unaware of the recalls or whether they simply choose to ignore the warnings.
Many of the recalled products pose injury hazards to children and include Simplicity bassinets and cribs that have caused the deaths of more than 12 babies. The CPSC recalled Maclaren strollers after receiving reports of the exposed hinges chopping off the tips of children’s fingers, and an infant recliner called Nap Nanny, used for sleeping babies, was recalled after six infant deaths were positively connected to the product. Buckyballs and Buckycubes were recalled when it was found that children swallowing the small magnetized parts could be at risk of dying or severe intestinal injuries.
